What is a Kenyan Mummy Makeover?

The “Mommy Makeover” is a description of a combination of specialized body contouring procedures, which women might want to undergo after they have given birth to one, two, or many more babies.

Many times, I hear my patients say “Now its time for ME – please make me look great again.” You have given half of your life to bear the babies, raise the children, and support the with their school fees. You feel you have earned it to treat yourself properly now! And why not? You look into the mirror, but its not the attractive body of a 25 year old anymore. Yet you feel great and you want to look great!  And you deserve it!

Mummy makeover surgery, once popular with the movie stars (“How did she get a body LIKE THIS so quickly?”), is nowadays one of the most popular surgeries in Kenya. Our mummy / mommy makeover package is specifically designed to adress issues faced by women who have been through pregancy and breastfeeding.

It is so popular,  because the mommy makeover has no set components; each procedure is custom-tailored to fit the individual woman´s unique needs. The surgical approach usually starts with a breast lift or reduction and tummy tuck procedure, then adding other contouring techniques as needed.

Mummy Makeover surgery procedures:

The most obvious areas that are included in a mummy makeover are the breast and tummy. Because your skin might not be as stretchy anymore, it will not simpky go back to its original position – stretch marks and extra skin might prevent this. You might have also gained weight which is difficult to shift after pregnancy, and your boobs are starting to droop. Other areas like your arms, thighs, genial area might also be affected.

 

The mummy makeover that will be specifically tailored to your needs might include:

Depending on your individual needs, body shape and general medical condition, Dr Stasch will discuss with you the recommended set of procedures. Someties, a mommy makeover can be performed as one single operation, but in many cases, some procedures may be spread out over multiple surgical sessions for safety reasons.

Are you ready for a serious boost in self-confidence? Your Kenyan mommy makeover will be life-changing, restoring confidence and pride in your appearance.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS about Mummy Makeover:

Mommy makeover usually means combining ops like tummy tuck and breast lift, or other ops. The most important factor to consider here is SAFETY. So as long as the op is safe for the patient, many different areas of the body can be snatched. Safety can mean not operating for more than 4 hours, not removing more than 5L fat during liposuction, or if there are any medical conditions which can lead to complications. We always weigh the options and with our vast experience, we keep the odds in our favour, by sometimes recommending 2 operations rather than one, usually 3 months apart. Remember, the aim of the cosmetic surgery is to look good not at all costs, but safely, so you can recover quickly to enjoy your loved ones.

Excellent scarring is what being a good Plastic surgeon is all about! So no matter wether we combing tummy tuck, breast lift, liposuction arms and waistline, apart from safety, good scars are the highest priority. With good scars we mean fine, flat, barely visible or well hidden lines. Although the scars colour differs depending on your skin colour, over time most scars will fade.

The length of an operation for mummy makeover depends on how many procedures are combined – breast, tummy, arms, legs, buttocks etc. We usually make sure the op is safe, so any op length between 3 and 4 hours is envisaged. We have done safe operations in fit patients that lasted around 5 hours, but that is not common. Any duration longer than that is definitely not recommended.

Costs depends on which procedures will be done, because it usually involves a number of different ops. Usually, the total cost including doctors fees, hospital, equipment and pressure garments, will be in the range of 750,000 KES to 1.100.000 KES, which would mean all costs are covered. So it is worth planning early and save up some money, since insurances usually don’t cover this procedure, unless you have medical reasons which qualify you for surgery.

We are working on joining forces with a credit company in Kenya, but as of yet, you will need to save up the money before any cosmetic surgery. Having said that, we DO offer payment plans if you choose to pay UPFRONT, I.e. many of our patients pay us a monthly sum that they want to save for their upcoming surgery, to avoid spending it “by accident” on other fun things.

Keeping healthy means you will want to change your lifestyle of exercise and nutrition a bit, to maintain the amazing results after a mommy makeover – its worth is and your body will thank you in the longterm.

After a night in the hospital, you will recover at homer, and visit our Clinic on14 Riverside regularly for dressing changes. It usually takes 2 weeks to recover well from a tummy tuck, which is often part of the mummy makeover package. Sometimes, if more procedures are combined, it can take another week to be fully active, but it really depends on the patients and how motivated they are to get back into normal activities. Six weeks is when we recommend resuming gym, exercise, and all other activities.
